Dutch Pirate Party Launched Lawsuit Against BREIN

Dutch anti-piracy outfit BREIN has successfully pursued a few proxy operators that have been facilitating access to The Pirate Bay. However, BREIN is now facing a legal battle with the Netherland’s Pirate Party, which reacted to a court order to block access to the index portal.

BREIN is a well-known Dutch anti-piracy outfit, which managed to convince a local court of law that the torrent tracker The Pirate Bay and its users are responsible for copyright violation. In the lawsuit in question a couple of the largest Internet service providers in the country, Ziggo and XS4ALL, were subject to the injunction. Today BREIN keeps trying to extend this injunction to other broadband providers in the Netherlands.

However, blocking access wouldn’t be enough, particularly for savvy file-sharers. That’s why the anti-piracy outfit has been monitoring groups providing links helping to bypass the measures taken against The Pirate Bay. Of course, those included the local Pirate Party, which initially put up a “reverse proxy” in order to help people trying to access the most famous BitTorrent tracker.

Recently BREIN obtained a new injunction, which ordered the proxy of the Pirate Party to be removed. Despite the fact that the Pirate Party eventually gave in, it has still posted a protest page with all data and links on how to obtain access to the tracker once again. Of course, the anti-piracy group demanded the Party to remove these links, but the latter so far took down only hyperlinks.

The Pirate Party has finally decided to sue anti-piracy outfit over last week’s injunction, and it’s likely that they will raise a question about Ziggo and XS4ALL and their injunction as well. The Party admitted that by dragging the anti-piracy group to court, it would finally get the opportunity to put forward arguments to strike the injunction that was unilaterally imposed on it a few days ago by the local entertainment industry outfit.

Meanwhile, the industry observers throughout the globe claim that web-blocking injunctions on grounds of copyright violation are becoming very popular, particularly in the United Kingdom, where the British Recorded Music Industry is currently trying to force Internet service providers to also block access to The Pirate Bay.
